Accident investigation

Stick to the facts.

The purpose of an accident investigation is to identify and document the cause so steps can be taken to prevent it from happening again. When an accident occurs, conduct an on-site investigation immediately, secure the accident site and, if necessary, arrange medical care for the injured. Interview employees and witnesses until you have a complete assessment of what happened.

Supervisors must complete an electronic accident report in SHMT (Safety Health Management Tool).

And that’s smart safety!
